Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG Y20U
Sony MDR-EX150AP
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.weight

9.75g

3g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
3.weather-sealed (splashproof)
AKG Y20U
Sony MDR-EX150AP
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
4.travel bag is included
AKG Y20U
Sony MDR-EX150AP
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an in-ear form
AKG Y20U
Sony MDR-EX150AP
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
6.has an L-shaped plug
AKG Y20U
Sony MDR-EX150AP
An L-shaped plug is better if the jack is on the left or right side of the device, so that the cable isn't bent, and is less likely to break when the device is in your pocket.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

13Hz

5Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

22500Hz

24000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction
AKG Y20U
Sony MDR-EX150AP
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.sound pressure level

115dB/mW

103dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.impedance

38 Ohms

16 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
6.driver unit size

8mm

9mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
AKG Y20U
Sony MDR-EX150AP
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG Y20U

A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

1.can be used as a headset
AKG Y20U
Sony MDR-EX150AP
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
2.number of microphones

1

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
3.Has an in-line control panel
AKG Y20U
Sony MDR-EX150AP
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
